It was Wilson's first interview since her diagnosis.
In an unexpected but exciting move, America's parents, Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson have officially become Greek citizens. On Instagram, the Prime Minister of Greece, Kyriakos Mitsotakis posted a photo of the couple holding their new passports alongside him and his wife, Mareva Grabowski.

In 2012, Wilson found out that she was of Greek descent on an episode of Who Do You Think You Are? Since then the couple has visited the country regularly. In January, Hanks announced that they had become "Honorary citizens" in a Twitter post. "Starting 2020 as an Honorary citizen of all of Greece! Kronia pola! ( more or less, “happy year!”)," he wrote.

Its been a turbulent few months for the longtime couple. In March, they revealed that they had been diagnosed with COVID-19 while Hanks was filming in Australia. They isolated there for several weeks before returning to Los Angeles, where they shared their journey publicly and encouraged their fans to take it seriously. "There are things we can all do to get through this by following the advice of experts and taking care of ourselves and each other, no? Remember, despite all the current events, there is no crying in baseball," he said.
